Manchester United should axe duo to sign Pedro

A major overhaul is expected at Manchester United this summer after a disastrous campaign. 

The Red Devils have slumped to seventh in the Premier League table and won't be entering Europe's elite competition next season. 

David Moyes' so called league winners have flopped and many are expected to depart the Theatre of Dreams in the up coming market. 

And, as the United boss looks to stamp his own mark on the team, he must show inconsistent wingers Nani and Ashley Young the door. 

The duo have both been linked with a move away from Old Trafford in recent time, and must be sold ahead of the 2014/15 campaign. Incredibly, Portuguese misfit Nani only signed a new long term deal with Moyes' side earlier this year, but that was surely a ploy to get more money out of him.

Many expected Nani's quality to shine through at Manchester United, some even tipped him to replace Cristiano Ronaldo, but ultimately he's let the club down and hasn't developed into half the player so many had hoped for. 

It's all well and good being able to produce one magical moment every four or five matches, but overall his performances - when getting on the pitch - haven't been up to scratch. 

Nani joined the same summer as midfielder Anderson, and he could also leave at the same time. 

And, whilst some criticism on Ashley Young may be slightly harsh, the former Aston Villa man just isn't good enough to wear the red shirt of Manchester United. 

At the end of the day, Red Devils fans have been used to the likes of Ryan Giggs, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo running up and down the wing at Old Trafford - unfortunately Young just doesn't have that same appeal. 

Young, much like Nani, provides the odd flash of brilliance, but United need someone that can cut it on a consistent basis and that man is Barcelona ace Pedro. 

The Catalans star is the type of winger United need. He's quick - not quite as quick as Antonio Valencia - but he's the type of speedster the Red Devils need. 

He brings pace, but he also brings class and quality. Manchester United appear to be moving into a different direction. The Red Devils were once renowned for their old fashioned, hard working wingers, but now - with the stars at their disposal - they could implore a new system. 

If United opted to play the likes of Pedro, Kagawa and Mata behind Rooney, with Januzaj and Valencia in and out of the team, the Red Devils would have even more quality and class in attack than ever before. 

Pedro, at Barcelona, has been used sparingly and recent reports have suggested that he wants to quit the club. 

United need to bring him to Old Trafford and team him up with his fellow international Mata. Putting the footballing brains of Mata, Pedro and Kagawa together could be something special to the Theatre of Dreams.
